    Pros

    No Pros during my experience with the company.

    Cons

    Treated terribly by managed while pregnant. Returned from standard maternity leave to additional management harassment. Worked as diligently as possible with extensive additional hours including bring my new born to work on weekends in effort to win over management team to no avail. Ultimately forced out.

    Advice to Management

    It is vital to recognize that employees outside the 'clique' can genuinely love, support, invest in and drive company growth.

    Pros

    I liked the fact that I was given minimal supervision in what I was doing, and the other contractors I interacted with were friendly.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Could never get management to make a decision. The ability of their supervisors to plan was mediocre. There is no room for growth and they do not track performance so that you can prove that you are invaluable to them. I will never work for them again and I will advise others to stay away. Not a great company to work for if you care about quality.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, you should interact with the people doing the work. There are too many supervisors who are either incompetent, or who are absent. Look for ways to base your employees work on tasks that are measurable. otherwise you are hiring drones who will never contribute meaningfully to the ManTech brand.

    Pros

    Work environment, locations, buildings, software packages

    Cons

    Salaries are good, about 80% from the Big 7 Govt contractors. Like everywhere else, insurance packages are minimal investments for the companies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term retention.

    Pros

    Excellent management, and administrative staff. Management has a hands off style, which allows the employees to shine on their own.

    Cons

    I am working on a contract, and there is little communication between ManTech headquarters and employees on contract. There is also a disconnect between expectations of contract and headquarters employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communications between headquarters and contract staff to bridge the gap in expectations. Employees on contracts have little connection with corporate culture and can feel alienated from the culture.

    Pros

    Not overly bureaucratic for a company of its size.

    Cons

    Continual cost cutting and staff reductions eventually results in poor work quality as the remaining overworked staff struggle to get the basic work done. Not a company concerned about attracting and retaining the best and brightest...most have left. Salary cuts and annual benefit cost increases beyond the norm.

    Advice to Management

    If you spent as much time developing your workforce as you do finding ways to cut costs, and finding ways to retain employees rather than treating them as expendable as soon as the contract is lost, you might turn things around. Exec management does not walk the talk regarding company values; morale is in the tank in our division.

    Pros

    The company has many locations available for employment opportunities. The lack of strict oversight makes it very easy to do only what is expected of you minimal effort.

    Cons

    This company does not value its employees nor the people it does business with. ManTech consistently underpay the employees on contracts, which is necessitated by the efforts to undercut bids from competing companies. As with most defense contractors, they do not value loyalty to their employees. The bottom line: this company is not a place to stay long term.

    Advice to Management

    Work on building your internal assets by developing the skills your employees have. Show employees they are valued by using competitive incentives and offering them more than a commemorative pin.

    Pros

    Offers good benefits and somewhat ok salary, but very interesting work. Most of the people are highly skilled, whatever their role, and hours were pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Two items for this: as with so many large firms, the higher up the food chain a manager is, the more clueless and often, the more arrogant. Fairly common throughout the industry. Maybe not so common and worse: within departments (say, accounting or proposals, contracts, can be any department, etc ) it can be like be like high school cliques, competing for resources and back stabbing occurs behind people's backs within departments quite frequently. Every man or woman for him- or herself. Hyper-competitive and cut-throat. This is something I and a number of others I worked with there have experienced. If you are new to the place, be very careful, figure out who your real friends are, if you can find any. Become friends with people in other departments for support and information about those in your own department. Be careful about doing great things too fast and too quickly, as jealous coworkers may work to undermine you.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to create and reward teams that truly collaborate and whose members don't try to undermine each other. Get rid of bad apples who spend more time playing power politics than doing their assigned job. Get rid of managers who use and reward subordinates as surrogates for their their power tripping games.
